Just been over to GCR today and thought I'd post some pics for you





Both taken just after she pulled into Rothley Station. Bring on Tornado

Thanks for the pix
. Our first electric train was a Triang Britannia, so I have a soft spot for them.

Especially as 70013 was _the_ last steam locomotive to run a BR service which is presumeably why the overhaul has been completed this year?

I never got to Bressingham to see Ollie, but did manage a short footplate ride on 70000 at the SVR back in the 70's.
